At Rittenhouse Village At Portage, we know that as a caregiver for a loved one, it can be difficult to take time off. You may feel guilty about needing to go out of town for a few days or about having other responsibilities to take care of. The reality is that taking time to rest and recharge can actually make you a better caregiver in the long run.

Taking advantage of respite care services for a loved one is often important for a caregiver’s health and their ability to continue to provide care for their loved ones. With the Respite Care program at Rittenhouse Village At Portage, we make it easy and worry-free for you. If your loved one needs extra assistance when recovering from illness or surgery, or you simply need a break from caregiving and some short-term support, we are here for you. Let our compassionate Respite Care program provide the help you need.

How Respite Care Differs From Other Senior Living Programs

Put simply, respite care is quality, compassionate, short-term care for your loved one when you need it. Respite care differs from the services a typical senior living community provides. Programs involve short-term stays in a senior living community. These stays might take place while a caregiver is away or otherwise unable to care for their loved one. In some cases, seniors may choose respite care while recovering from a surgery or other medical procedure, when they might need extra care.

In our senior respite care programs, residents have access to all of the resort-style amenities of the entire Rittenhouse Village senior living community, including exciting activities and events, delicious meals, assisted living services and so much more. In addition to our senior Respite Care program, we offer the following senior living options at Rittenhouse Village At Portage:

  • Senior independent living
  • Assisted living
  • SHINE® Memory Care

Caregiving can be a full-time job. However, senior respite care offers you a chance to come back to caring for your loved one with renewed energy. With the help of the dedicated team members at Rittenhouse Village, you’ll have peace of mind while away.
